VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT "He Conquers Who Conquers Himself" - Thick Brass Coin Necklace
"A pendant that is destined to be worn and weathered."
The front of the pendant features an engraved nautical scene with the Latin phrase VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT around the edge of the artwork, which translates to “He conquers who conquers himself,” which is stamped on the back of the pendant.
The nautical scene depicts a sailor fending off a giant octopus with a harpoon as the octopus attacks the ship. In this example, the sailor has the strength and determination to defeat the octopus only because he has already proven his own worth and ability to himself by surviving life on the sea this long.
A different iteration of the Latin phrase is “bis vincit qui se vincit,” which translates to “he (she) who prevails over himself (herself) is twice victorious.” This could be taken to mean that if you have successfully trained yourself to reject a fearful nature and instead go forward with goodwill and courage, then that is one major battle already won and you are much more likely to succeed in the next external conflict you face.
- Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

Please Note: These pendants are made out of raw, uncoated brass and are meant to develop a beautiful patina over the years. They will most likely have a few smudge marks on them when they arrive and if worn directly on the skin, the pendant will darken rather quickly. If you prefer the pendant to retain its original shine, then we suggest periodically polishing it with a soft cloth or cleaning it with a metal cleaning solution such as Brasso.
